Why Professional Air Conditioning Maintenance is Important

Everyone enjoys saving money, but is a DIY A/C repair always the best way to do it? This post will discuss what benefits you receive from hiring a professional air conditioning company instead of trying to complete and diagnose repairs yourself.

To put it simply, the integrity, effectiveness, and energy efficiency of your air conditioner depends on how well it is taken care of. Even top of the line models with comprehensive and thorough installation services will suffer unnecessary repairs and even premature replacement if they are not routinely cared for by a professional technician. As a homeowner, you are responsible for changing the air filter about once a month during the cooling season and keeping the area surrounding your units free and clear of debris. Beyond that, your A/C requires the technical expertise and skill set of a trained professional.

Below are some reasons why you need professional air conditioning maintenance. Call 1st Home and Commercial Services

Energy efficiency

Considering the ever-rising costs of energy, it’s becoming more and more important to our customers that their air conditioners not only perform well but also be energy efficient. The ratio of electrical energy input to cooling output is critical because you don’t want to be paying for inadequate cooling. Low refrigerant and dirty system components are both common culprits for energy inefficiency. However, these things can be easily remedied with routine maintenance.

Improved system life

Your A/C was a big investment in the comfort of your home, and should be treated accordingly. You buy a car knowing the oil will need to be changed and regular maintenance completed. Your A/C system has similar maintenance needs. By taking care of routine maintenance along the way, you allow the system to work as it intended, and may even boost its expected system life.

Cooling performance

What professional maintenance really provides is performance. You want to ensure that your air conditioner performs well no matter how hot it is outside. A dirty and neglected system won’t live up to your cooling expectations. If you take care of your A/C, it will take care of you. There’s no better way to do that than with professional maintenance.

And don’t forget safety!

Routine seasonal maintenance from a professional brings an added safety aspect for your property, as well as you and your family. The professional recommendations given by a technician can save your home from water damage associated with an A/C system. Electrical hazards can be prevented from both faulty A/C and Heating units. And if you have a gas powered system, a professional can check for leaks to ensure no build up of gas can happen.
